Alter Bridge have released a lyric video for their original, new song ‘Last Rites’ taken from their upcoming EP Walk The Sky 2.0. The video has a dark and mystical aesthetic utilising a fortune teller making a prediction based on the song’s lyrics. The song was born from an idea that band members Myles Kennedy, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall, and Scott Phillips began sharing after the cancellation of their entire 2020 touring schedule and was written, recorded, and completed entirely during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Heavy guitars and Kennedy’s cracking vocals make this a stomping track that batters its way out of the speakers. These guys have always cracked out the solid tracks and with ‘Last Rites’ they step it up a notch.
